Our Mission

Accelerate Italy is an international Business Acceleration platform between the US and Italy that allows a bi-directional flow of knowledge, ideas, capital and access to new markets. It connects the emerging entrepreneurial community in Italy with the highly-developed startup ecosystem in Boston, Massachusetts. In Accelerate Italy, American entrepreneurs support Italian entrepreneurs in an advanced acceleration process to learn the American ways of building startup companies.

Accelerate Italy operates two cohorts per year. The accelerator  provides American start-up skills and know-how to promising technology focused startups that have initial revenue and the potential to scale internationally.  

The goal

“Engage the global entrepreneurial community to drive innovation, capability and synergistic growth”
